I was going to try and do something fancy to celebrate this (practically) perfect food, like a Chicago deep-dish pizza in honor of my temporary home… but I was really longing for a nice thin crust. So I went with my gut. Making pizza at home is VERY easy and inexpensive. I bought a store made crust at Whole Foods, which cost $3.99. Since I only used half for a thin crust… it was only a 2-buck crust. Then I used about ¾ cup sauce (I like this Local Folks Foods Pizza Sauce in Whole Foods) and I mixed Teese and Daiya vegan cheeses on this one (about ¾ cup), but you can do what ever you like…. Even do a cheeseless version. Then top with your favorite toppings and bake at 450 for about 15 minutes.
I kneaded a couple tablespoons of vegan butter into the dough, enhances the flavor.
If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can use a large jar to roll out the dough.
Bake the dough about 10 minutes before you top; help gets it nice and crisp.
